Jason Day reportedly hiring Tiger Woods former caddie Steve Williams for U.S. Open Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Tiger Woods, his 15th major secured at the Masters, is on the rise again heading into the US Open at Pebble Beach, scene of one of the US superstar's most dominant triumphs.

Now, according to a Golf Channel report, Day is taking another page from Woods' book by working with his former long-time caddie Steve Williams.

Meanwhile, Brooks Koepka knows history is beckoning at the US Open at Pebble Beach - and that's just the kind of challenge to get the big-hitting American's juices flowing.

Phil Mickelson, a five-time major victor who could complete a career Grand Slam with a victory at Pebble Beach, will play alongside fellow American Dustin Johnson and Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell, a US Open-winner at Pebble Beach in 2010.

Day was seen practicing at the grueling coastal course with Williams and confirmed he will in fact be his caddie for the major championship. Williams did have positive words for Woods after he won the 2019 Masters with new caddie Joe LaCava on the bag.

Day is one of eight Australians in the field at Pebble Beach this week. The New Zealander later worked with Adam Scott before he and Woods split in 2011.

Day is looking for his second career major victory to go along with the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.

Day's childhood mates, Luke Reardon and Rika Batibasaga, normally share caddie duties for the Queenslander. Day finished in the top 10 in four consecutive U.S. Opens from 2013-2016 but missed the cut the past two years.

Meanwhile, Keegan Bradley fired seven birdies in a seven-under-par 63 on Thursday to take the first-round lead at the US PGA Tour Canadian Open, last tune-up for the US Open at Pebble Beach.
